Student Employment (Co-Op)
The Cooperative Education Program, commonly referred to as "co-op," allows students to work at job sites within the scope of their career majors. Students receive on-the-job training, course credit, and gain hours toward industry-recognized credentials. Co-op is open to seniors all year and juniors for the second half of the year.
- What is Cooperative Education (Co-op)?
- Who is eligible?
- I’m thinking of hiring a student. How does that work? Can I conduct an interview?
- I’ve heard that students aren’t allowed to work on certain equipment – is that true?
- Do I have to do extra paperwork for the school?
- How much can a student work?
- Do students have to to work the same hours as the school day?
- I'm not sure I can guarantee the minimum number of hours. Can a student work per diem or as needed?
- Am I required to pay Co-op students? How much?
- What are my responsibilities to the student/school after the initial hiring and co-op paperwork?
Welcome to Minuteman High School’s Online Job Board. Minuteman is proud to be the first high school to partner with College Central Network, a software company that designed an interactive job board and career services database. This system allows employers to post jobs directly to our school via the CCN site and allows students and alumni to search jobs, create resumes and portfolios, and gain access to a wealth of career tips and advice.
Employers and Alumni are encouraged to register for an account to connect with Minuteman and its Workforce Development Office. Current students have a pre-registered account, and should use their school ID and email address to finish the initial registration and create a password.
